Hi all,

Im trying to install Cairo-Dock and I got errors :

imx51gui@xin-desktop:~/CD/core/cairo-dock-core$ autoreconf -isf && ./configure --prefix=/usr && make
autoreconf: `configure.ac' or `configure.in' is required
imx51gui@xin-desktop:~/CD/core/cairo-dock-core$

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

BR,
Xin

That's an easy problem: Cairo-Dock is not using autoconf/automake anymore. It is now based on CMake.
I wanted to say "see our wiki", but I just realized it is outdated... oops...
So, here are the steps:
- update from bzr (already done, I think)
- start cmake in the cairo-dock-core subdirectory:
cd cairo-dock-core && cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr

- make and install the core of cairo-dock:
make clean && make && sudo make install

- start cmake in the cairo-dock-plug-ins subdirectory:
cd cairo-dock-plug-ins && cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr

- make and install the plug-ins of cairo-dock:
make clean && make && sudo make install


Hope it helped !

you could have said "see the INSTALL file"
but I agree, the wiki should be updated !

It's not outdated... The latest stable release still uses autoreconf (By compiling) but not the current beta version (From BZR and this wiki page has been updated the March 24)
